Day 12 – A Rubbish Gift


Today it’s over to Helen!

“I’m Helen, 45, from Newcastle upon tyne. I don’t like to see things go to waste and believe that everything is inherently beautiful and useful in it’s own way.”


Today, keep the things that you would usually throw away – things like wrappers, envelopes or orange peels. Use your new-found art materials to create something new, for somebody else. 

If you don’t have any rubbish or recycling to create from, make something from ‘junk’ in your drawers!


What do you think of your new creation? Did anything about this challenge surprise you?
